At the end of February, WWE will return to Saudi Arabia for the next big pay-per-view in “The Kingdom” and a major legend will be there. As usual, WWE goes all out for these events, as there is a lot of money exchanged by the two sides while there. That is why WWE puts on top-tier matches and will invite huge superstars to join the event. The most recent rumors have Hulk Hogan coming back to once again appear at Super ShowDown.
On Thursday, February 27, WWE will head back to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia for their next big pay-per-view. It will once again be called Super ShowDown, although that’s the only confirmed detail of the event that has been released so far. Though the creative team has been organizing plans for the event over the last several weeks, nothing concrete has been discussed yet.
PW Insider is reporting that Hogan is scheduled to be at Super ShowDown, however it is not yet known what he’ll be doing. This is not a big surprise, as Hogan is always a big draw for a WWE event, especially ones in Saudi Arabia.
In November 2018, Hogan returned to WWE after more than three years away, due a scandal involving racial comments. He was only part of the show as its host, doing nothing more than opening the event and introducing himself to the fans in order to kick things off in a big fashion.
This past October, Hogan once again went to Saudi Arabia, but this time, he was the captain of a five-man tag team. His team consisted of Roman Reigns, Rusev, Ricochet, Shorty G, and Ali. They faced off against a team captained by the “Nature Boy” Ric Flair.
Flair’s team included Bobby Lashley, Randy Orton, Shinsuke Nakamura, Drew McIntyre, and King Corbin. Hogan’s team ended up winning the match in a little under 20 minutes for a hot crowd who loved every moment of it.
A little over a month after this year’s Super ShowDown, Hogan will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame for a second time. Inducted first as a singles competitor, Hogan will now be put into the Hall as a founding member of the nWo (New World Order) during WrestleMania 36 weekend.
Of course, anything and everything is subject to change with still about a month left until Super ShowDown. WWE could end up changing plans entirely, so Hogan’s appearance at the event should be taken as nothing more than rumor for now.
